City Lit: Advanced fiction writing workshop with Sarah Leipciger
Tue 9 Jan 2024 to Tue 19 Mar 2024
For experienced writers, this supportive but rigorous workshop offers the perfect opportunity to develop your novel or short story. Receive in-depth feedback and benefit from detailed group discussions on the art of fiction.

This is a supportive but rigorous workshop for experienced writers, ideal for those who have completed beginner or intermediate fiction writing courses. Students' work will be discussed and critiqued, and you will benefit from an in-depth exploration of approaches to writing and revising fiction. All forms of fiction writing - long or short - are supported on this course.

Students say: "The atmosphere was open, critical, but friendly and helpful"; "Rigorous and incredibly useful feedback from the tutor and the class"; "Outstanding teaching and genuine warmth and constructive criticism"; "I received useful, actionable feedback on my writing.".

Sarah Leipciger’s debut novel, The Mountain Can Wait, was published in 2015 with Tinder Press in the UK and Little, Brown in the US. She has had short stories shortlisted for the Bridport Prize, the Fish Prize and the Asham Award, and is a past winner of THIS Magazine’s Great Canadian Literary Hunt. She has also written non-fiction for The Guardian and The Toronto Star. She has facilitated workshops at several literature events, including the Edinburgh International Book Festival, and has been teaching fiction and life writing to young people and adults in prisons since 2003; she is currently the Creative Writing tutor at HMP Brixton in London. Her second novel, Coming Up for Air, will be published in February 2020 with Doubleday UK and House of Anansi Press in Canada. Doubleday UK has also procured her third novel, with a release date TBA. She is a PhD student in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths University.
